Aug 9, 2012New Art Academy is a good tutorial for aspiring artists, or for portable drawing. With well-presented, educational tutorials, it's a good pick up that features a comprehensive journey through multiple disciplines and art styles, although with a very small screen.

After all these years, they made lots of new lessons to learn and draw. And if you like your drawing, you can place it in your museum which only has drawings. If that's not enough lessons for you, you can always download more lessons. One interesting feature is that you can now make your own lesson! It's called a custom lesson. You can share them with other people. And if you remember, you can always do free paint. This is where you can make your own painting without anyone talking to you. If you are artist, then this game is worth it!… Full Review »

After looking at a few YouTube videos of the first game, I was intriguedI had never played the first Art Academy before purchasing this. After looking at a few YouTube videos of the first game, I was intrigued enough to purchase this game while on sale. I have had my 3ds since launch and I can comfortably say that this is already in my top 3 games for the 3ds. I have completed the first 5 lessons in the beginner section and I am addicted. I played for 6 hours straight the day I bought it and even dreamt about drawing that night! The lessons walk you through each picture and style, ensuring that you understand the techniques that are being delivered. I already feel like my skills have increased significantly and that I will be more inclined to start producing art again like I did when I was an early teen. Each lesson will utilize different styles and give you insight on some famous artists/pieces of work. Overall, I would highly recommend this game to any fan of art and anyone who would like to learn the basics or perfect their skills. I hope Nintendo continues to focus on these types of realistic interactive games, the video game industry needs intelligent games like these.

I have done three of the built in levels and can already see a difference in my skills. Not only does the game teach you how to draw, it also teaches you about famous artists and some of the history of art. I highly recommend this product to anyone willing to invest the time into learning how to draw and paint.… Full Review »
